I had on previously but sold it before i went to basic training. Nothing was wrong with it just needed the money at the time, but i really like the weapon as a whole and i dont have the income to drop 1k and up for a 308 rifle, being a soldier and all such as a dsa Fn-FAL,M1A,PTR-91 whats the worst scenario for me buying this rifle,it has wood furniture, and comes with three 20 rounders and one five and looked to be in good working order when i handled it , thanks and god bless

Although it's a bit of a crap shoot, $400 and no tax is probably worth the gamble. If you don't get a lemon, they're an excellent rifle for the money.

Yeah...it is a crap shoot. I love mine, but it took a little bit of work to get it up to snuff. Bunch of little things really. I paid $300 a few years ago, just after the time when they were thick at every gun show. I wouldn't part with it for double the money now.:cool:

I paid over $400 for mine and must have gotten lucky it is a nice shooter. I don't take it out much since ammo has gotten $$$$$ for it.

If it does not have a ground bolt, and you don't mind some minor do-it-yourself gunsmithing, it can be a great rifle.
